Clifford Beers is a mental health clinic serving children and families in the Greater New Haven area. Our focus is on working with children who have experienced trauma — things like abuse, neglect, witnessing community violence, and loss of a loved one.
At CBC, we believe that in order to best care for a child, it is necessary to consider and, where appropriate, treat not just the child but the entire family. If we work with a child but place him or her back with a family that is struggling for one or more reasons, what progress can the child truly make? Thus, care may involve working with one or more additional family members, reviewing the family’s basic needs issues, or connecting with the child’s school and teachers. In this way we can best remove barriers to healing and help the child pursue a healthy, resilient and happy life.
Our mission is to provide accessible community-based mental health services and advocacy that promote healthy and resilient lives for children and families.
Our nationally recognized programs and multi-disciplinary approach to therapy have made us a leader since our founding in 1913. In fact, we are one of the oldest community-based nonprofit outpatient mental health clinics in America.
Offering a wide variety of programs and services – from individual, group and family therapy to providing a family with complete wraparound care – the Clinic strives to ensure that children and families in our community can thrive.
